GK & General Science Books:
These are two important sections in railways non-technical exam as you will questions from Physics, Chemistry, Biology along with General Knowledge.
The RRB exam guide listed above also covers general science but its not extensive.Since one can expect atleast 10-15 questions from science background, its required to prepare with a separate book on general science.
‘Mega Yearbook 2016’ from Disha publication should be a very good reference material as it provides detailed information on GK, Current affairs & General science.Moreover it is designed mainly for competitive exams like Railways, SSC & UPSC.

The Manorama Yearbook doesn't cover basics of General science.Hence it wont be of use for the upcoming railway exams.
